Alpine Weight Loss Secrets {Giveaway!}

Congratulations to #2!  You will be e-mailed and have 48 hours to respond to claim this prize!  Thanks so much to Stefan Aschan for the opportunity to host this great giveaway! 

 I've never been one to diet because it really messes with my phyche.  I was actually a bulimic adolescent for a short period of time and was also anorexic before that.  The pressures of society were so great that I succumbed to the need and desire to be ultra thin. Now, I absolutely adore food and if I am blessed with an occasion to enjoy a tasty morsel, such as the incredible tacos made with corn tortillas, homemade guacamole, chicken and salsa that DH made, I'm not going to pass up on it.  But fortunately for me, tasty also means healthy.  I don't like junk food with empty calories and artificial ingredients too much because I feel gross afterwards.  

When I got the opportunity to read Alpine Weight Loss Secrets, I was really impressed. I can put so many of the ideas found in this book into my life without actually feeling like I am dieting.  The great thing is that I will still lose weight if I follow any number of the tips found in Alpine Weight Loss Secrets!
The chapters in the book are:
  • Change your mind, change your body (flex your mental muscle)
  • “Lighten” your metabolism
  • Alpine Eating: Choose Tomatoes Not Potatoes
  • Improve Your Fat-titude
  • Instant Anti-Ager: Your Posture
  • The At-Home Alpine Aerobic Solution
  • Train Yourself “Jung” (young)
  • A Flat Belly – “Schnell” (fast)!
  • The Joy of Living: Think and Grow Thin
  • “Hudry Wusch”: Eat Yourself Thin
  • “Holodrio!” Stay, Feel, and Look Young for a Lifetime
 I feel like this book is great for any age or stage in life because it is a philosophy that works with you and your lifestyle.  The recipes are totally healthy, easy and tasty.  The only thing is that some of us may not have access all of the time to organic meats and vegetables, like Stephan recommends.  Of course organic is better, just not always accessible.  I say, do the best that you can at where you are, it will still be great.   
My take:  This isn't just another diet book.  It is a fresh and very motivating approach to food and exercise that makes losing weight fun and not drudgery! My suggestion would be to work on one chapter at a time until it is part of your lifestyle and you don't have to think about it anymore.  A simple change that I have made is that I have lemon water in the morning.  It is really simple, but it makes a world of difference because it speeds up the digestive system and metabolic processes!
Stephen would like to give one of my readers a free copy of this book and here is all you need to do to qualify!

Tell me how your weight loss experience has been in the past and a weight loss tip that has worked for you!

I have found eating in moderation helps. I also did weight watchers for a few years.

I think writing down what you eat/drink keeps you on track.
